Cigar box guitars are designed for having fun playing an instrument that's easy to learn, or those who want to experiment with a new and very unique sound.
Cigar box guitars were originally created in the mid 1800’s when people didn’t have money to purchase instruments, so they made their own from whatever was on hand - a broom stick, cigar box and so on.
Ed has upscaled this functional folk art into beautiful and unique musical instruments. These one-of-a-kind guitars are easy to play and sound great plugged or unplugged. Due to the differences in the materials used and Ed’s interest in exploring new ideas and techniques no two guitars will ever look or sound alike.
Each guitar has either 3 or 4 strings. Sound holes are crafted to complement the box design , and marquetry inlays are added to accent a design in the box or to create a customized image or inscription
Ed is an artisan craftsman with 30 plus years of experience that is immediately evident in each high-quality hand-crafted guitar.
